house today. It was over the sundry civil
appropriation bill, which contains the
Sherman bond amendment. There are in

amendment, objected, unless it was agreed
that that amendment should be, after de
bate, also non-concurred in. This sugges
tion of Mr. Bland's raised the antagonism
of Mr. Cockrau, and no agreement was ar
rived at. The silver men then resorted to
filibustering tactics, which were effectual,
and alter a speech by Mr. Bland the bill
went over without action.
